Great response last night at the SSM Airport. It truly was a golden moment to see our returning Gold Medal Curling Champions Jacobs Team. It certainly makes you proud to be a Canadian Olympic supporter, but extra special right here in our home town of Sault Ste. Marie.
Way to go guys; you made your City proud and you deserve all the accolades you have received and will continue to receive.
Thanks for a great ride. It sure was a lot of fun.
By the way, you guys were super last night by staying around for over an hour signing autographs and posing for pictures. You really are a class act.
